11:02 pm
>> reporter: but authorities say it's the same gun the slain man used just before being gunned down, and say they were protecting themselves. the shooting happened when two uniform officers were conducting a fare inspection at a muni light rail stop saturday afternoon. they detained the man, but he fled. investigators say he then fired at officers who fired back. >> this doesn't happen in pacific heights. >> reporter: community activist's son was shot and killed by san francisco police officers in 2008. >> they shot him 48 time. >> reporter: she argues cell phone video shot at the scene shows the suspect running away from police with his hands up in the air and says the gun couldn't be his and shows a greater problem with sfpd. >> the shooting in the back of randall. the recent shooting by bart police of charles police. and now black youth. >> reporter: now that frustration is spilling out of

give at-risk african-american youth exactly that. >> our kids need to know who they are and on whose shoulders they stand. with that they can make it. >> reporter: it part of a mission to recruit, train and send mentors into the community. but it goes one step farther. to also help the volunteers heal from their own trauma before sending them to help others. the program's founder who is also the editor and chief emerit tis of "essence" magazine. >> we turn on the news, and it's the same news. young african-americans killing one another or being killed by others. >> reporter: it's this violence that has inspired many to step up and give their time. >> it really makes a difference for them just to see someone who is doing well and healthy and showing them that they care. >> reporter: the mentors come from all over the bay area, but many are from oakland. after having found success in their own lives, are looking for a way to give back. >> and i just got tired of
11:06 pm
telling, you know, complaining about what was going on and not doing anything myself. >> i expect more young boys graduating from high school and college. i expect a lot. and i expect some healing to happen in our community. >> reporter: money for the pilot program is coming from the department of education thanks to congresswoman barbara lee. if it is successful, we may see this model replicated to more than 50 cities throughout the united states. live in oakland, kimberly tere, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, kimberly. the deadly bus crash in san francisco last week is prompting a state lawmaker to push for changes in california's seat belt laws. a ucsf shuttle bus collided with a truck thursday in haze valley, ejecting a passenger on the bus and killing him. the bus had no seat belts, and the law says buses are not required to have them. but state assemblyman tom ammiano wants to change that.

11:09 pm
who resigned herself on friday. it was just a week ago that murdoch flaw to london and stood by her side, all smiles. brooks had a meteoric rise at the company, becoming editor of news of the world when she was only 32. neil shon worked for another murdoch partner, the sun. he is now a news analyst. >> fantastic networking, and of course an ability to do the job. >> reporter: it was in 2002 with brooks at the paper's helm that news of the world reporters allegedly hacked the phone of murdered teenager millie dowler, a case that shocked and infuriated this country. brooks denies any knowledge of phone hacking, and has apologized. for the last decade, the charismatic editor has rubbed elbows with the rich and famous, and the powerful. she has had close personal relationships with the three most recent prime ministers. as recently as last december, david cameron met twice with brooks in visits that his office

lessen gauged than the husband. rather than the other way around. >> it's really sad, frankly, to see so many women not involved in the financial and investment decision-making process. because on average, women will live longer than men. >> reporter: in liggett of the recent economic downturn, though, where retirement account took a beating, even young couples are expected to do better going forward, planning for retirement. chris clackum, nbc news. speaking of money, dollar coins are costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, really. for almost four years, the mint has been churning out the $1 coins bearing the images of presidents. but the coins haven't exactly caught fire with the public. >> how often the you use dollar coins? >> never. >> nobody has ever heard of them. >> you can't really put them in things like vending machines. >> there is so little interest in the coins that some have ended up at the federal
11:17 pm
reserve's coin vault in baltimore. in all more than a billion dollars in coins are now just sitting in vaults around the country. the cost to taxpayers? about $300 million so far. so here is how that is calculated. 32 cents to make each unwanted coin plus $650,000, which is what the fed is about to spend on yet a new vault to store them. but ending the dollar coin program will likely require another law from congress. until then, the mint has five years and 20 presidents to go. and now for a check on the weather, rob mayeda joins waus look at some changes ahead. >> well, we did see a cool finish to the weekend, even though we got the sun to come out in many parts order around the bay area. you can see during the day oakland the clouds thinning out as cooler and dryer air mixed on in. even the sunshine, temperatures only in the 60s and 70s. not exactly what you would expect for july. morning clouds eventually giving way to the sunshine. but really not going to find any 80s in the forecast. the good strong sea breeze which
11:18 pm
continues to pump in the cooler air, both from off the ocean. cooler air aloft moving in which is temporarily helping to break up some of the low clouds. now overnight tonight we will continue to see more low clouds spilling on in which will lead to maybe drizzle for the monday morning commute. up on the north county, we have a system that is digging pretty far to the south, going along in that trough of low pressure which has been hung up across the west coast. totally different story off to the east where they're seeing sweltering heat. for us, thanks to the dip in the jet stream, we're going to stay cool at least to kick off the start of the workweek. then we'll see rapid changes as we get towards thursday and friday. at least through tuesday, the regime of morning drizzle followed up by afternoon sunshine. afternoon temperatures will warm up a couple of degrees over the next few days. more significant warming as we pass midweek as we see an even spread of 70s and 80s inland. eventually getting into the 90s as we approach next weekend. so summer, and yes, july weather
11:19 pm
making a comeback. overnight low clouds with misty in some spots. temperatures mainly if the 50s. as we head through the afternoon on monday, after we break up the low clouds, at least inland, not a bad day. as we head over to morgan hill we may start to see low 80s popping up inland. cool 70s around san jose and portions of the santa clara valley. 60s for san francisco. and near 70 in oakland. east bay, we should get close to 80, maybe out towards solano county and parts of the north bay. lake port should see warm temperatures. but the real warm-up is going to hold off for the second part. finally it's starting to feel more like summer. 80s and 90s coming back for inland valleys as we head towards next weekend. >> sounds very nice. women's world cup action took the bay area by storm, and much of the country that is this afternoon with a very dramatic finish. thousands of bay area families and soccer fans gathered at civic center plaza in san
